Club Saint-Germain-des-Près 1961
Jean-Christophe Averty was a gift to jazz. The French director captured incredible performances in the 50s and 60s with a focus on atmosphere, as if he knew his films would be looked back to with a nostalgic eye by future generations. Another focus was jazz education – he filmed groups of musicians he knew would expand listeners' minds, like this one, playing in 1961 as part of the Modern Jazz Festival in Paris.
